On the Children @ Church page, Georgina has prepared newsletters which can be downloaded to cover the Easter period.

As 5 January 2021

St Margaret's Church is still open for services as follows:

Thursdays            10.00 am to 11.00 am

Sundays               11.00 am to 12.00 noon.

With the increases in infection, if you wish to attend one of our services, please click here for information on what happens at our services - thank you.  If you prefer to worship at home, then please look at our "Situation during Covid" page to find postings from the Vicarage.

If you wish to attend the church for private prayer at another time, then please contact the Parish Office  on email or leave a voicemail on 0121 357 1390 to arrange so that somebody can let you in.

As from 17 May 2021, Government restrictions have changed and attendance at Funerals will no longer be limited to 30 people, but will now be determined by how many people the COVID-secure venue can safely accommodate with social distancing which for St Margaret’s is 50 people.

Limits at Weddings, Baptisms and Interment of Ashes will be increased to 30 people (excluding church personnel). 

For Weddings, the Vicar, Bride & Groom do not need to wear face coverings although others do.  For Baptisms, please speak to the Parish Office.

Church worshippers are reminded that they are required by law to wear face coverings for services in places of worship (unless they have a valid exemption), remember to sanitise their hands and people are also reminded of the importance of continuing to self-distance (2m / 6ft 6in). 

Donations to St Margaret's Church

There a now new way to donate to St Margaret's Church using "Donate Now" set up by the Diocese of Lichfield to help their churches.  Their Finance Team, with help from a local software company, Data Developments, have put a Donate Now button on the Diocese website.

If you would like to make a donation to St Margaret’s Church, then click on the link to the Donate Now page, after you have clicked the button, you can enter your details and can choose St Margaret’s from the drop-down list of churches. 

In addition, there is a Gift Aid option as well as an option for donors to cover the transaction cost if they want to.  As is the case with Contactless and Giving Direct, funds go into the Diocesan bank account as the registered charity and are then passed on to St Margaret’s as soon as possible along with a report showing when the donations were made. 

Many Thanks
